SPONSORED: The City of Tualatin launches COVID-19 grant program
The City of Tualatin has launched the final round of the $1.2 million economic grant programs for COVID-19 affected Tualatin business and households. These funds are dedicated to providing eligible Tualatin-based businesses with grants up to $25,000 and childcare scholarships for Tualatin households up to $3,000.
There are two grant programs available to businesses in Tualatin:
-- Business Rent Assistance Program; and the
--Small Business Grant Program.
The Business Rent Assistance program provides eligible businesses with 25 employees or less with two months' worth of rent, up to $8,000. This grant is intended to help businesses who were prohibited from operation as a result of the "Stay Home, Stay Healthy" Executive Order and/or who experienced a 25% decrease in revenue compared to 2019.
In addition, the City is also administering the State of Oregon's Small Business Grant Program. This grant provides eligible businesses with 25 employees or less with grants up to $25,000. Like the Business Rent Assistance Program, this program is intended to help businesses who were prohibited from operation and/or experienced a 50% decrease in revenue who were unable to access programs like the Paycheck Protection Program, or who received amounts less than the eligible grant amounts.
The City of Tualatin is also committed to providing scholarships to Tualatin families needing access to affordable childcare as workers return to work and schools continue as home-based remote learning. These scholarships provide up to $1,000 per child per month (limit two per household) for a maximum of three months for Tualatin households making less than $100,000 annually. Children must attend a registered emergency childcare (ECC) provider based in Tualatin.
All grant programs are accepting applications online and via postal service until November 5th at 5:00 PM.
